  6. I stayed in Tennessee for about 8 months approximately 10 years ago. It was my first encounter with the South, as well as my first up-close and personal look at a peacock. Ever since then, peacocks have held a special place in my heart because of my great experience and life-changing events while in Tennessee... In addition to the fact that I also like you, love the colors in the peacock and have my whole entire life. Just wanted to say hello and I noticed that there are several different things that you like, think we're due a particular way that are right in line with the way that I feel, do or like. I had already entered my subscription to get newsletters from you, when I then went through and look in your categories and realized that my draw to your newsletter was more than correct, I'm excited to see more of what I proved to me over the next several weeks. From one peacock fan to another, Katherine
